The University of Szeged warmly welcomes its international freshmen students at the start of the new academic year 2021/2022. After an official welcome by University leaders on Monday the 6th of September, the following days are dedicated to a variety of orientation programs including useful information sessions, cultural and recreational activities.


Around 1000 international students are expected to start their studies at the University of Szeged in September. We are well aware of how hard it can be for students to leave their familiar environments to embark on the next step in their educational journey. That is why each year we organize our Orientation Days to help international students get involved with our university’s culture by creating a welcoming atmosphere and providing all necessary information they need for a successful and stress-free start of their studies in Szeged.

The official opening ceremony is organized on Monday the 6th of September, 2021, starting at 9.30 am. Our students are greeted by the leadership of the University who will deliver an opening speech. As part of the day’s further program we will hand out the SZTE Start Scholarship Award letters, and introduce our colleagues working at the Faculties and the Directorate for International Affairs. A photo shooting is also planned to create lifelong memories of the start of the studies at the University.

Students will also have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the many different services offered by the University, from Student Counseling through the Foreign Language Centre to our Alma Mater unit. On top of that there will be several useful information sessions held by the Police, our ESN Mentors, and the Office for International Student Mobility.

Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, this year is an exceptional year for all of us. Therefore the University would like to offer a special celebration to its courageous freshmen by organizing an Oath of Freshmen in front of the leadership of the University, followed by a superb outdoor party.
The declared intention of the orientation is to make the newcomers feel part of what we call The biggest community in town. The integration of the international students is also assisted by this website providing crucial information to start their studies at the University of Szeged.

We can’t wait to see you there!
